Abstract:

"Christ-followers are supposed to be the most liberated people ever to walk the face of the earth--with a message powerful enough to cause the dead to rise and the blind to see. We're supposed to have God living inside of us. We're supposed to know how to be in the world but not of it. Does that describe your life? Author Kary Oberbrunner suspects the answer is no, but not because you aren't passionate about Christ. Rather, it's because the church has been ripped apart and reassembled into two main camps that, at best, casually tolerate each other. The first camp separated itself from people, society, and culture for the main purpose of remaining unstained by the world. While the second camp conforms itself to the ideals, philosophies, and goals of the world is an attempt to be all things to all people. So what's the alternative? A growing number of people believe in a different way and a different world. They are transformists. And they have the power to change the world."--Back cover.
